    I don't see any gunk, but a piece of a cooling fin from another cooler.

    Or am I not looking in the right place?

    Thanks OrangeClockwerk! Got notice from Highflow today that they had finally dispatched the second to last much needed package. Not long now!

    Gunk as in the part that's circled in the pic referred to by Shurika?

    I can't believe I own the part in question and yet am just as lost as you. :worried:

    Oh that. Went to have a look and it seems like it's a part of the heatsink. Doesn't come off when I tried poking it and it seems to be covered in the nickel plating. It take it that it shouldn't be there?

    Looks to be a piece of scrap that has made it's way on to your piece. It will take a bit of pressure to break the plating bonding it, but safe to remove. :)

    or you can leave it for that "1 in a million" claim. :lol:

    Yep that's the one. Don't think its supposed to be there. Mine doesn't have it, so either you or me are the lucky ones. :lol: Just like Craig^^ said, you may be able to pop it out. :thumb:

    Been prodding and staring at the heat nugget for few hours now and... Well, it kind of has a name already and all. Heat nugget. Maybe we'll just call it the secret mascot of this build since I don't have pets or funky cardboard figurines to stand on things and my massive orchid isn't really that suitable either?

    Two weeks three days ago. Time flies when you’re having... stuff. Nuff said, I did some modelling, took some photos and then personal stuff took over.

    Fast forwarding to yesterday. The last bits arrived. Miska, you’re a god. :rock:

    [​IMG]

    It’s good that I waited. Had I modelled stuff based on the substitute bits I would have been 1.5mm off, and there as it sounds like nothing, the result would have been devastating aesthetically and would have meant ruining the mobo tray cover plate.
    But enough waffling. Time for some good ol’ working pictures.

    First gpu in.

    [​IMG]

    Second...

    [​IMG]

    It’s a fit!

    [​IMG]

    Time to add some more bits.

    [​IMG]

    Getting everything to sit perfectly evenly was not as difficult as I had thought.

    [​IMG]

    Mmmmmmmmmmmm.

    [​IMG]

    Such distractions! Back to work!

    [​IMG]

    Slow and steady, power for the GPUs.

    [​IMG]

    There shall be order.

    I would have modelled the cpu as well but I managed to get some weird sudden cramp in my neck, making it impossible to turn my head to the left. Hopefully it dissolves overnight so we can get back to work tomorrow. Who knows, we might just get more dodgy work snaps by Sunday evening.

    It’s good to get back to working with the mod. Thanks for watching everyone!

    Love the way you did the tubing on the cards and the 4 lines going down, that's gonna look awesome :)

    Really nice going Egami.

    The tubing & wiring will look really nice when finished and I can't wait to see that.

    As for your neck, hopefully it's better, but if it's not, muscle relaxants and rest are your friends. Got my fair share of back problems as well, so I know how much it sucks. Get well soon.

    Thanks! Wanted to keep things clean but still do something a little different. :)

    Thanks Darkened. Night sadly failed to do the trick and I ended up spending Sat well stuck till I gave up and crawled in the sauna. Silly neck. Now thinking about summoning some good weather for the easter weekend to help push the mod towards the finishing line. :thumb:

    Time sure flies when you’re having fun. Not.

    But enough with the personal stuff, let’s scamper on.

    For the first time I have to admit having encountered a machine that makes humans seem like an easy operation. Don’t take me wrong, the printer’s awesome when you get it to do what you want but getting there... Let’s just say that it’s been a long hard road through hell and then some.

    [​IMG]

    Taking a closer look at the results reveals a world... a little different.

    The random wobble that hits always so very suddenly and unexpectedly. Odd thing is that the issue only manifests vertically. Reason for this remains unknown.

    [​IMG]

    Too much filament (Fixed now)

    [​IMG]

    Not enough filament (Also fixed now)

    [​IMG]

    The Brainfart. For reasons unknown the print randomly shifts vertically midprint and if allowed to continue the result ends up resembling a schizophrenic’s daydream.

    [​IMG]

    I’ve since managed to print both of the covers successfully and am printing new bottoms as I write. So far so good. Oh, and I managed to scrape together enough change from between the couch pillows to replace the ancient drill that also decided to die on me.

    [​IMG]

    Finally some black bits and bobs that got the rattle can shaken at them as well. But at least now they’re all the same black.

    [​IMG]

    Thanks for watching!

    really nice printing there and glad that you could get it running.

    a way to get the wobble out would be to print it bigger and than to smotth it down to the right size again, but useally I never saw this much wobble while printing 3D
